Village Voice's Description

Nha Toi's chef, Fred Hua, is a California transplant who understands and respects traditional Vietnamese cooking but is notably adventurous and versatile in the kitchen. His Vietnamese joint on Havemeyer Street in Williamsburg initially made waves with his inspired banh mi creations, but now Nha Toi focuses on pho, bun, and rice dishes. The pho broth steams with an elegant fragrance, and his beef and pork cuts are of a much finer quality than most casual Vietnamese spots. So compact it's cool, Hua's restaurant is intimately tiny (the name translates to "my house") and he will most likely be the one handing you your order. He'll also be the one taking your order, and the charismatic, no-nonsense chef likes it best when customers step up to the ordering nook with their minds made up. The menu on the wall explains everything, and during the warmer months, the half-inside, half-outside window/counter makes for the quintessential, chill sidewalk cafe vibe. --Alex Spoto

Tips from foursquare

  • The Corcoran Group on 02/11/11

    Strike up a conversation with the owner at this cute hole in the wall joint and order “The Pho” or the Bo Kho.

  • Serious Eats on 04/17/13

    Creative (and cheap) takes on Vietnamese fare with tasty banh mi and pho. Good for vegetarians, too.

  • Matt Y. on 09/08/10

    The pho bahn mi, with its juicy beef brisket slices, is to die for. If you're really hungry, strap down in front of a pho dac biet (house special). And say hi to Fred the badass owner.

    "The pho ga ($7) has a clean-tasting broth, spiked with black pepper, takes center stage here; no Sriracha is required, though a fistful of pickled chilies can back up that flavor with a slow burn."

    This place is the secret spot. Great cheap and wonderful food. Fred is the man.
